    • In 2009/10 I took out a secured loan of 110K with BOS they took a second charge on my property (main residence). In 2013 I hit financial difficulties which I informed them about and eventually sold the property in 2017. Their behaviour throughout was extremely heavy handed and their solicitors were very aggressive, just one example - even though a sale was agreed and the conveyancing was proceeding smoothly and they were being kept fully informed that still took us to court to try to enforce the Possession Order they'd previously obtained, fortunately we were in front of a sympathetic bench that day and we held on until completion of the sale.   Now that the scars of this horrendous period of constantly being under threat of eviction have started to heal I have looked back over the financial damage. BOS recharged over 30K of legal fees, they knew we had equity in the property and it seems were happy to trash that equity just to keep the pressure on us, their lawyer dealing with the matter said as much in one of the many calls (off the record). They charged interest throughout. We also incurred about 10k of legal fees ourselves in defending their draconian actions.    I have written twice in the last few months to BOS head office but have been ignored. I tried the FOS on an unrelated mis-sold SIPP matter without success so am a little reluctant to go there again. It's too large for small claims and costs of a another form of court action could quickly escalate and don't want to 'throw good money after bad'.     Would welcome your input on whether there is any chance or reclaiming any of the 30K? If so, how?          
    • Hi there, Apologies if this should come under debt. First and formost it seems a UPS problem.   I recently got a letter from Control Account PLC asking for £131.15 and that their client is UPS. The first line in the letter reads "UPS Limited have previously contacted you in relation to an outstanding invoice". I have had no correspondence from UPS regarding anything other than deliveries. The letter gives no details of what UPS charge I am paying, date, tracking number or any relevant information to identify the debt. From my emails the only possible thing it could be is from an order 11th jan 2021.   I have no problem paying this if it is UPS but I don't want to pay a debt recovery firm or their additional costs. (I have recieved a new letter today asking for £15 more).   Should I write to Control Account PLC and ask for information to prove that I owe the debt? Since I have had no correspondence from UPS, surely I should be given more time to pay with them?   Thank you! kind regards!  
    • Not yet, I had problems with Tesco refusing any liability about another incident 2 years ago (look on my profile for that post) causing me to lost £300. This time, I am going full force in writing with Trading Standards. Calling them is pointless.
    • A Summary Offence is one that can be dealt with by summons at Magistrates Court. Perhaps you meant 'its Not a summary offence'   Had it been kept or used  on the public road, it would have been a summary offence.
    • Hi all,   I find myself once again maybe going for the wrong/bad car!   Basics Car: Audi E-tron 2019/19 with 13800 miles on the clock which was an ex-Audi UK car sold via an Audi Lookers dealership. Picked up: 17/6/2021 Method: Outright/cash with deposit of £1000 paid on credit card Price: £47399   Day of handover, found a small dent and showed to salesman who said he would get it all sorted - no issues as I know him/dealer very well. Evening of handover, I emailed salesman in addition to dent, several other issues with most being minor and one being the My Audi app not working with the car.   Timeline 23/6: Car is picked up to get bits resolved. 29/6: Car returned - My Audi issue still outstanding (confirmed by salesman ) along with 1 other item (severe rusting on brakes/discs) + a minor rattle low down on the list of priorities.  New issue with a scuff now on same side as dent -  14/7: Car back at dealership to get remaining bits resolved 21/7: Car returned with brakes/discs resolved, scuff for next time due to time, my audi issues remain   What the officials say Dealership aftersales are stumped with the issue and have logged with Audi Digital Services + Audi UK I've spent 5 hours now with Digital services with 3 cases of my own logged- all 3 escalated by no ETA on resolution Audi UK have logged it too under my name.   Why is the app so important? Well aside from the fact you can lock/unlock using it, being an electric vehicle, it tells you about charge status and enables climate control remotely.   Why is this so important you say? EVs don't do well in cold temperatures - If this carries on into the winter, preconditioning is critical to the longevity and efficiency of the battery - this is where you remotely switch on the climate control to draw heat towards the battery. Charging status is also important - twice now I have been left almost stranded because the charger stopped working due to a fault.  When this happened, the app failed to notify me it had stopped or it was not increasing charge.  Some 30 mins later (or 60 as it was yesterday), I go back to the car to find its stopped and there isn't enough range to get back.   Forums I am also not the only one with this issue.  One forum has over 19 pages of people complaining around the world. Another one with 6+ pages- there is also an e-tron group on facebook again with complaints.   Who does it impact?  Pretty much anyone with a 2019 or early 2020 e-tron.  It seems fine for late 2020 and 2021 models.  Also the A8 I had as a loan car and a late 2020 e-tron, both worked as did my previous SQ5 that I sold.   FOD The app also has something else called Function on Demand.  This is where you purchase "packs" to enable functionality in the car that it did not come with or was not specced with.  My reason for buying this specific spec car despite missing two bits I wanted was always that I could purchase them later. Initially these were not available at all - Audi stated an update would fix it so this was actioned...it did...well for one out of the 2 I wanted.  But even the 1, I purchased it and it has been "installing " ever since. It is all however most likely related to the app/communication issues with the car.   Conclusion I like the car a lot and don't want to reject especially as I will not find a similar spec/price again.  The next closest option is almost £10k more as its newer. But if I do reject, is the app not working sufficient reason?   I am looking at another brand as a backup but they have their own baggage with reliability and with my relation with this specific dealership + generally Audis, I would prefer sticking with them. My concerns around the FOD is also as the licences begin to expire (Maps, My Audi, Alexa etc) this should be something you can renew via FOD but currently may not be working/available to renew.       Thanks in advance

Hi,

I’m seeking some advice on dealing with Arden Credit Management.

 

It relates to a loan from HFC bank which was in a DMP.

 

After CAG advice last summer (not enough posts to insert a link to it)

 

HFC Loan, started in September 2004 still with them £3,800 outstanding.

 

 

I sent a CCA request to HFC in July 2013,

but never heard anything back from them and consequently stopped paying them.

 

At some point HSBC took over the account more directly,

but apart from a few texts saying call this number, I heard nothing from them.

 

Since then:

October 2013

Letter from HSBC saying that account number so-and-so has been sold by HSBC to Britannica Recoveries.

Letter from Britannica Recoveries SARL to say that they have purchased it

and that Moorgate Loan Servicing Ltd will be administering the account on their behalf.

 

December 2013

Default Notice from Moorgate asking me to pay or they’ll terminate the loan agreement Early January 2014

Moorgate letter terminating loan agreement

I then sent Moorgate the ‘Letter for a Failed CCA Request’ from the library telling them

I’d made a CCA request to HFC in July 2013 and not received a response.

 

Mid January

Moorgate letter saying that they have appointed Arden Credit Management

 

Late Jan

Arden letter saying that they have been instructed by Moorgate

I then sent Arden the same library letter I’d sent to Moorgate

 

Mid February

Arden letter saying non-payment is not acceptable and they might send someone around and start legal action.

These two letters are the only communication

I’ve initiated since the CCA request and I’m tempted to continue to otherwise ignore them.

 

However they call my mobile most days

– I’ve had 19 calls and 13 texts since 29th January.

 

I always ignore them (but it’s irritating if my phone starts vibrating when I’m trying to teach which is what I do for a living).

 

Also I’d hate for them to really send someone around when it’s my wife at home most of the time and I know she’d be upset.

 

Should I continue to ignore and hope they go away?

 

I’ve looked at my report on Noddle and the account is no longer there.

 

Is there any chance they’ll stop?

 

Or should I send a new CCA request, recorded delivery (to Arden or Moorgate?)

 

Or send the Harassment and Doorstep-Visit Letter?

 

As ever many thanks in advance for your time and advice.

been through all that with one for my neighbour from them.

 

no cca no pay simple really

 

as for the calls

doorsteppers etc

 

they never show up.

 

yes its annoying

 

but in my example

 

they never supplied nor could get a CCA

 

and the neighbour ignored everything.

 

of course should you get a claimform or an SD

DONT IGNORE THOSE.

 

as this is from 2004

 

i'd suspect the agreement has the PPI box pre typed yes I bet

and you were persuaded! in a closed room by the advisor to take it out

so theres some reclaiming to do there

 

and if theres not a sep sig for the PPI

 

its whats called a multiple agreement and HFC know thy are bad news

so that's why they've dumped it.

Many Thanks dx for your reassuring reply,

I've gone with ignoring them. Managed to dig out my agreement and (sadly) its crossed No!

 

Interestingly also came across an HFC letter from 2010 offering us a 65% discount for a one off settlement back then!

Thanks again

Quick update,

Moorgate have at last sent a letter to say they can't send me the CCA as requested, because HFC hasn't supplied them with one!

 

Arden meanwhile continue to try calling me and have just sent a letter to say they have appointed Resolvecall "to attend your property".

 

Any thoughts whether I should ignore, or write to them again? Also, is there advice on what I should do/say if someone does visit?

 

Many Thanks,

J

as will all DCA's doorsteppers too have NO LEGAL POWERS.

 

resolvecall rarely appear anyway.

 

however, if they do show up

 

simply tell them to leave you property

or the police will be called.

 

as with DCA's on the phone

NEVER EVER enter into any conversation

NEVER EVER PAY THEM.

 

i'd also not enter into any letter tennis too.

 

you nailed your colours to your flagpole already

Well finally Moorgate have sent me a reconstituted CCA relating to the HFC loan.

 

(Summary: 2004 loan to pay off a CC, defaulted in about 2007, no longer on credit file, but paying via a DMP until July 2013.)

 

Would someone kindly cast an eye over what they’ve sent so that I know whether I have to start paying them something?

 

 

I have my own original (which I could scan as it’s more legible). They look identical, only differences I can see are: Dealer Code is a different number;

Under “Comprising” the “Amount to discharge your existing indebtedness” is £0.00 on mine and “Balance to you” is £6,204.00 i.e. the other way around;

 

And of course my own is signed.

 

Many Thanks in advance for any ideas

no dice Moorcroft

for a 2004 loan it must be the signed original.

 

 

can we just confirm

 

 

your sig appears nowhere on the recon does it?

Thanks for the quick reply dx.

 

Never did SAR HFC, I kept a close watch on the loan and never saw anything added on. I can't remember the card it paid off though, and don't seem to have kept records of it.

 

But my signature is nowhere on the recon CCA though

if you'd sent the SAR back in july 2013 p'haps you'd know what the discount is by now.

 

 

to enforce this debt in court

they'd need the signed agreement.
